Luciano is feeling great as he prepares for the 2022 season. He reported he felt fatigued down the stretch of 2021.
Luciano is one of the top prospects in baseball but struggled last season, especially after his promotion to high-A on August 5. In low-A, he posted a .278/.373/.556 slash with 18 home runs in 308 plate appearances. After his promotion, he slashed just .217/.283/.295 with one home run. His strikeout rate ballooned from 22.1 percent in low-A to 37.2 percent in high-A. When I saw Luciano live, he did look fatigued and like he was not having fun. He spent time resting afterward but is ready to go for 2022. He stated his focus is "cutting down on strikeouts, making more contact, and putting the ball in play more. Luciano is working on a new, more open stance to achieve this.
The Giants promoted top prospect SS Marco Luciano to High-A Eugene.
Luciano has hit .278/.373/.556 with 18 homers, 57 RBI, and five stolen bases in 70 games at Low-A this season. The 19-year-old future star is widely considered a top-10 overall prospect in baseball, and he's a very exciting player to roster in dynasty leagues right now. While there are questions as to whether or not Luciano will stick at shortstop, the young phenom possesses thunderous power and could one day register elite exit velocities at the big league level.

A consensus top-10 prospect in baseball, the 19-year-old could be in line for a promotion to High-A within the next month or so. Luciano possesses thunderous power due to his elite bat speed. There are questions as to whether or not he'll stick at shortstop, but his bat is going to play anywhere.
Marco Luciano went 2-for-4 with two homers and three RBI in Wednesday's game for Low-A San Jose.
The 19-year-old physical phenom has been off to a slow start this season, so this two-homer game was highly encouraging. Luciano's exceptional bat speed and natural strength have translated to high exit velocities and thunderous raw power. Hopefully this game is the start of a breakout this season.

Luciano is a 19-year-old shortstop who's considered a top-10 prospect in baseball. He arrived to spring training looking "noticeably thicker" this spring but went 1-for-16 with 11 strikeouts in Cactus League action.
